Dream Warrior Pictures first announced the sequel to Kaithi in 2019 immediately after the success of the first part. However, the project got delayed due to Karthi and Lokesh's prior commitments.
More recently, Karthi's character Dilli from Kaithi made an appearance in Vikram, with which Lokesh established a new cinematic universe. It is not yet known if the director is planning to further expand the universe by bringing in Kamal's character Vikram and Suriya's Rolex to Kaithi 2.
Karthi is all set to see the release of Ponniyin Selvan II in April. He is also working on his 25th film Japan, directed by Raju Murugan.
